Happy Birthday, Dear Ted

Happy Birthday to "the best thing in red."

The Cardinal-Archbishop of Washington turns 75 today and enters an uncertain future. Whatever may lie ahead, let us give thanks for Uncle Ted, a great gift of kindness, humility and great service in the life of his church and country.

No truer words could be said than those of Molly Ivins': "His manners are so much better than anyone who has ever trashed him, it is a monument to his Momma."

May Cardinal McCarrick's good manners, his great faith and generosity continue to enrich and inspire us for years to come.
